This is what someone forwarded me about speeding tickets,

Subject: speeding ticket


IF YOU SHOULD GET A TICKET (No Joke)

If You Get A Traffic Ticket, This has been tried and it works. I tried to
send this to everyone I know.
I know that for a fact this works so if you ever get
in this situation, you have an out.

We discovered that this procedure works in every state. Read it and try
it, you have nothing to lose but the points on your license.
This is how it works: If you get a speeding ticket or went through a red
light or whatever the case may be, and you are going to get points on your
license, then there is a method to ensure that you DO NOT get any points.

When you get your fine, send in the check to pay for it and if the fine is
say, $79, then make the check out for $82 or some small amount over the fine.

The system will then have to send you back a check for the difference, but here is the trick!

DO NOT CASH THE REFUND CHECK !!

Throw it away! Points are not assessed to your license until all financial
transactions are complete. If you do not cash the check, then the
transactions are NOT complete. However, the system has gotten its money
and is happy and will not bother you any more.

This information came to our attention from a very reliable computer
company that sets up the standard database used by each states' DMV.

Good luck and share this with all your friends and other family members, as well! :)


What do you guys think? Any truth to it, or anyone gotten this?

I've heard about it. Never tried it myself, though.

Going to appeal my $155 speeding ticket in a few months,

I heard about this also... but it doesn't work here. They still hit you with the points, and if you don't cash the check they will come back to you asking you why you didn't.

Nice try but no cigar. Points are still assessed at time of payment anything over the fine amount is refunded by a check from the issuing township or county. Can you imagine if you could really do that..:Q
And if you do not beleive me contact a local attorney in your area that deal with traffic law.

Sounds cool...but rather than take the risk, I'd rather just go to traffic school online for 20 bucks and finish the course in an hour

and thanks for the link amigaman
